I've had IL-2 Sturmovik for some months and while $30 for a new game (no upgrade) caused me to pause, my good experience with the original, and the promise of so much more, urged me to spend a little Christmas money early! So far I'm just exploring the new "crates." I am very pleased with the planes now available and esp. the option to fly Finnish and other Axis allies. The ability to fly a twin-engine German bomber is fun. I might complain that it isn't the Ju-88... but I won't. You have to draw the line somewhere, and with all the other enhancements to terrain and ground objects, it's worth the extra money. When I first turned on FB it was as exciting as the first time I'd played IL-2. Few game sequels can boast of that. It's probably the only game I know (and it's the only one I own) that's as beautiful just to watch as it is to play.

Thanks. I download and installed the 1.11 PATCH for FB 1.0 (out-of-the-box). Do I need the others?

I'll keep an eye out for the add-on! Maybe skip the payware for now http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
